Walking into Dinner's locales, one may be forgiven for mistaking it for a posh night club. Sharply dressed waiters navigate the dimly lit, stylishly black interior to the backdrop of continuous deep house and ambient techno, while a wall of blue light guides patrons to equally elegant restrooms underneath. It is indeed a refreshing respite from the colorful paper lanterns,... More

We lived in Oslo for 4 months during summer 2013. During all this time we had visited Dinner several times. Not once the dishes were less than excellent. Try the lobster salad.

Although we have been great fans of Dinner since they first started up several years ago in a smaller location in Oslo, this is the first time we've used it to host such a large party. And it all went extremely well - the staff made it a joy and a pleasure from start to finish. A smooth, efficient and... More

Cons *If any, its almost always booked, but that tells it all:) Pro *Very nice location, close to everything and nearby train/bus. *Like the a bit dark and very soft atmosphere. Very rare I think. *Food is great and the best Chinese in Norway, and close to some food in Beijing! *Price is OK for what you get, really good... More

Host was sooooo attentive. We had several questions and he helped us with our selections - you are not restricted to the suggested menus! The foods were all served exquisitely. Service - exemplary. Couldn't ask for a nicer atmosphere and left pleasantly full. I rarely find a restaurant qualified for over 4 stars. I would highly recommend for a nice... More

Dinner deliver every time! Paired with a great wine selection it's a perfect night out. All the dishes are cooked to perfection with a authentic Chinese distinction. But what's with the cheesy Clas Ohlson LED lights on the table?! I'm really surprised they put this cheesy crap in this High-End restaurant.

Here, in capital of the country also known as the Land of the midnight Sun, (although Oslo is too far South for the Midnight Sun) you can have a real Chinese experience. The most spicy cuisine from the great culinary nation of China gives you the feeling of being far, far away from this country North in Europe. This restaurant... More

A very upmarket, if not slightly pricey (but isn't everything in Oslo?) Chinese restaurant. The staff were appropriately attentive. The food was excellent - the Steamed Seabass was perfect, with the portions generous.
